Are you saying that the openwrt-devel mailing list is intended to be
used only for patches for openwrt.git?  If so, this should be reflected
in the documentation.  I followed the instructions here:


In particular, section 5 says:

  "Look in the Makefile if a MAINTAINER macro exists. If so, e-mail that
  person. Unless you have a reason NOT to do so, always CC openwrt-devel
  <at> lists.openwrt.org. If no maintainer is listed, send your patch to
  the ​primary OpenWrt developer's mailing list."

If the openwrt-devel mailing list is intended only for openwrt.git,
where should patches for the feeds be sent?  GitHub is a problem.

openwrt-devel at lists.openwrt.org
